A Classic Wine Country Wedding

A rustic pastoral energy meets dreamy vineyard whimsicality and unyielding Southern hospitality at this charmed countryside venue. Early Mountain Vineyards speaks the language of love through warm settings, small details and thoughtful gestures.
Arrange your celebration around the golden grandiose event hall adorned in greenery or the gorgeously manicured great lawn and landscaped terrace. Mingle over cocktail hour, dramatic fireplaces and plush lounge seating in the vaulted tasting room. Host an elegant rehearsal dinner in the secluded wine library chambers. Spend your first night as newlyweds tucked away in a magical guest cottage nestled in the grapevines.
Handcrafted farm tables, bone-white china, Prescott lanterns, wine barrels and soft bistro lights set the tone. Historic barns offer a timeless backdrop for first-looks and gorgeous portraits and the grounds are stunning with native grasses, limelight hydrangeas and awe-inspiring fall foliage. The Blue Ridge Mountain foothills and 305 sweeping acres provide poised backdrop perfection with rich green rolling hills and forests as far as the eye can gaze, while blushing violet hour sunsets come standard.

The Location


Located in the heart of central Virginia at the northernmost point on the Monticello Wine Trail, Early Mountain sits on 305 acres just 28 miles north of Charlottesville.

Things To Do

Charlottesville is home to thriving orchards, farms, and more than 40 wineries that inspire unforgettable restaurant experiences. Hiking in Shenandoah National Park, renowned river kayaking, and championship golf offer thrills while a celebrated theater and local live music scene entertain. Our stages are well stocked with highly coveted acts. In fact, Charlottesville is where Dave Matthews Band and Coran Capshaw's Red Light Management — the largest independent music management company in the world — got their start. For a taste of history, Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, James Madison’s Montpelier, and James Monroe’s Highland offer guided glimpses into the Founding Fathers’ legacies.
